Nightclubbing 13 year old busted unconscious

By johnboy - 26 May 2009 46

The ABC is aghast the level of underage drinking police have uncovered around town.

    An ACT Police campaign against underage drinking in licensed premises has found an 13-year-old girl unconscious on a couch in city bar.

    They have highlighted the case of the 13-year-old as an ‘appalling’ example but also report finding 27 underage people in a Tuggeranong pub last saturday night.

    Suddenly axing the Liquor Licensing Board doesn’t look so clever does it?

What’s Your opinion?

Agree with JB. Licensing has been a pathetic joke in the ACT for years now. However I know the government is moving….just last year they made it illegal to spike a persons drink. We can all breathe easier non?

I was on a Tuggeranong Valley bus on Sunday & we had a few 15 or so year olds who stank of alcohol.

But I have been told that in certain areas of Sydney, the Police turn a blind eye to underage drinking. This is done because if the Police get strict, they may have riots on their hands from a range of ages. So by letting it go on, the public order is kept to a reasonable level. But while saying that, they know who buys them the alcohol & who are the underage drinkers & they try & get those people in gaol through those same people breaking other laws. It is just that judges think that these culprits are good little boys/girls & that butter wouldn’t melt in their mouth.

Doesn’t surprise me. The city bars are easy to get into before the bouncers get on deck – 5-6pm.

I used to be able to get in at 15. But I was playing senior cricket in country Victoria at the time so it was kind of allowed, if not legal..

@ 15 I was built like brick S***house and could get in anywhere – now I’m slight overweight and don’t want to go anywhere.

Yeah, I know that’s gonna come…I should stop eating these corn chips now…

I once saw an under-age duck that may have been drunk …

I got in a few times at 15, but f-k, that’s good.

How the hell does a 13 year get into a licensed venue !? I dont know any 13 yrs old that would even pass for 18+

Why isn’t the club named and shamed in the article?

“She was subsequently dealt with and the matter is, and action has been taken against her.”

Did she get drunk outside the club and then come inside for somewhere to nap?
